Agility Robotics is a pioneer. Our robot, Digit, is the first to be sold into workplaces across the globe. Our team is differentiated by its expertise in imagining, engineering, and delivering robots with advanced mobility, dexterity, intelligence, and efficiency -- robots specifically designed to work alongside people, in spaces built for people. Every day, we break through engineering challenges and invent new solutions and capabilities that will one day make robots commonplace and approachable. This work is our passion and our responsibility: our mission is to make businesses more productive and people’s lives more fulfilling.

About the role:

We are currently designing the next generation of Digit for commercial scale. The scale of the system and reliability that must be achieved are orders of magnitude higher than any existing bipedal platform, and the primary method that this will be achieved is by rigorous analysis, simulation, design and substantial testing. The Principal Systems Reliability Engineer provides leadership and expertise in order to ensure the product design is durable and meets reliability requirements to provide robustness in the field and during ongoing customer use.

About The Work:
Designs, develops, and executes reliability test suites to generate failure modes and life cycle data, representative of what may be seen in field / customer environments. Uses these data to produce reliability models to predict performance in the field during customer use. Provides feedback to Engineering on failure modes and predicted life performance and collaborates on design robustness improvements and failure mitigation. Plans the test execution and equipment required for testing and evaluating.

About you:

  • Bachelor’s degree in an engineering/science/robotics or related field
  • 5+ years of relevant experience working on reliability of mechanical-electrical products.
